Brian Ruthenberg Scoop Shaped Sandblast Pipe W/ Cumberland Stem

$185.00

ITEM DESCRIPTION

Brian Ruthenberg was among the best of the American pipe makers when he had to retire a few years ago due to a terrible allergy he developed to briar dust that set off other respiratory issues. His sandblasting techniques were second to none, and this pipe is what Brian called his Scoop, and the sandblast on this pipe is not ordinary either; it is deep and well defined. The piece is completed with a handsome and shiny bite mark free Cumberland stem that has an ivory wrap. And wait, there’s more! – this pipe also comes with Leather Ruthenberg pipes sleeve.

  • Length: 5-3/4 inches

Please Note: All previously owned and smoked pipes in Pipestud’s Consignment Shop have had the tobacco chambers reamed (if needed), and the exteriors polished. No internal cleaning has been done as I leave that very personal part of the ready to smoke process up to each buyer. I never sell estate pipes with undisclosed issues. If you are not totally satisfied with your purchase, all you need to do is return the pipe to me in the same condition that you received it in (you cannot have smoked the pipe), and you will receive an immediate refund including any shipping fees you incurred.
